There's almost no music written specifically for English Horn; here that part is also given for Bassoon in a transcription by the great bassoonist Matthew Shubin.

21st Century (2005-06). For baritone voice and trombone. "Ich bat Cerha, etwas zu Melancholie und mit Klavier zu schreiben. Dann ist etwas mit Posaune herausgekommen. Er behandelt die Singstimme als das, was sie im Ureigensten ist. In seiner Herangehensweise ist er extrem klassisch. Der Titel sagt es schon: Malinconia, Melancholie. Das Werk hat mit Einsamkeit zu tun, wie so oft im Lied. Der einzelne, der singt, und die anderen, die fern sind. Wir verhandeln immer dieselben Themen. Es sind nur ne...

The Polonaise was the first to be composed and was probably completed in Vienna in the following year. Andante spinato was added even later as an introduction to the work.
